CAPPA loves our members and their babies; however, the CAPPA Conference is a professional learning enviroment. CAPPA Conferences are designed to create an excellent educational environment for all of our members. Babies and families are welcome to come to conference; however, there are no children or babies permitted in any of the educational sessions themselves, therefore you will need a support person with you to care for your babies and children while you are in any general or optional sessions. CAPPA wishes to support our members who do not have alternate care for their babies/children during conference by providing low cost MP3s or DVDs of conference sessions available for purchase in the weeks that follow conference. There are no exceptions to this policy.

The 2015 CAPPA conference will be a free event for members who register by TBD. For those who do not register by TBD there will be a $50.00 USD late conference registration fee.

Our annual conference is free to all members of CAPPA, though additional optional sessions are offered at a low cost ($25.00 USD each) to extend your conference learning experience. Please see optional sessions for these additional opportunities.

*There is a $3.00 per member online convenience registration fee. If you do not wish to pay this convenience fee, you may print and mail in your registration. Please be sure to review all CAPPA conference policies prior to registration. Seats are first come first serve.

Our conference is *free to all CAPPA members, although for registration a valid credit card is necessary to reserve your seat. Your card will not be charged the $75.00 USD reservation fee, provided you are a member of CAPPA and you attend the conference *. In the event you cannot attend the conference, 30 days cancellation notice is required, or a no show fee of $75.00 USD will be charged to your credit card. You must mail your cancellation to CAPPA postmarked no later than TBD. We do not accept e-mail or faxes, our address is CAPPA, PO Box 2406, Buford, GA 30515. There are no exceptions to this policy.
